Will I need extra equipment on my Dell computer to get 7.1 surround sound out of the turtle beach px5 headset?

by on October 15, 2011

Q: I am looking to Buy the P5X headphones, I have saved and saved and have finally procured the $250 needed, However, I am not going to spend that kind of money If it will not also work on my PC. I have read many different articles about this but even though I am rather computer savvy I am lost in the language. I have a Dell XPS l701x and would like to know if any of you could help out, If I need any extra equipment to get the full 7.1 surround sound I will save up some more, I just want to know if it is possible. Thanks.

    The PX5 headset is designed for using with PS3 and xBox 360. It appears that it can work with a PC. Note this article from Turtle Beach which explains the hardware needed:

    All that said, in all my gaming experience I’ve been very happy with these: http://amzn.to/rskpto great sound quality, and great spatial awareness to hear where those bullets are coming from.
